The 2012 J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate on Diamond Mountain is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Malbec. A beauty, with raspberry, blueberry and even blacker fruits, the wine has a lusciousness, with silky tannins and real charm. If Châteaux Margaux made wine on Diamond Mountain it might well taste like this beauty. This is first-growth all the way: beautiful purity, symmetry, harmony and an ethereal lightness in spite of the richness and intensity. This is quite an achievement and already drinkable, but should continue to evolve nicely for 10-15+ years. (RP)
With a healthy 17% Malbec in the mix, this is the producer’s top-tier still wine, from a range of vineyard blocks above its winery. Named for one of its founders, Jack Davies, it does him proud, combining spicy clove, cinnamon and black fruit around a fulsome, tannic and concentrated body with structure to age. It finishes with elegance and peppery spice. *Editors' Choice* (VB)
A ripe red with dark berry, smoke, mineral and porcini on the nose. Stone undertones too. Full body, firm tannins, bright acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Layered and bright. Drink or hold.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is quite pretty. The addition of 17% Malbec gives the wine notable texture and richness. Plums, red cherries, mocha and spices are all beautifully delineated in the glass, but it is the wine's total sense of balance that truly stands out. This effortless, gracious Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for the next decade-plus. (AG)
Pure, rich, vivid blackberry and wild berry flavors form the core, with spicy notes of savory herb and cedary oak. Gains depth and plushness as the tannic strength develops. Drink now through 2028. (JL)
This refined, very carefully composed Cabernet impresses at once as a wine of real sophistication and polish. It leads with a deep, many layered nose of black cherries, cassis, cream and sweet tea, and, while never one that is defined by potency or power, it is beautifully balanced and wonderfully sustained on the palate with a spot of enlivening brightness that bodes well for aging. *One Star*
